It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 6000 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 Pontiac 6000!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Pontiac themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac 6000 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1985 Pontiac 6000 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 6000’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Pontiac 6000. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 6000 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac 6000 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Pontiac 6000 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Pontiac 6000 running newer, longer. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 6000 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Pontiac 6000.

Maintaining your Pontiac 6000 steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled!

  • When should I have Pontiac 6000 alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Pontiac 6000 to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Pontiac 6000? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Pontiac? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Pontiac 6000 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
